Hanging On To Summer

Look Book Look Time! I was initially going to create an Autumn/Fall look as fall fashion starts to creep its way in and my mind starts turning to scarves and layers… BUT I’m not ready to turn my back on Summer just yet; I’ve been told that August and September really charms with its weather here in Vancouver so an end of summer look was called for.

The look I have chosen is one of those casual summer must haves: a comfy tee, cut off shorts and a favourite layering top. With this look, I love how these denim shorts and white t-shirt are given a bit of style factor with the long floral drapery.

Hanging on to Summer

I went for a bit more of an interesting denim when recreating this look. I love all things Ksubi and these printed shorts are casual enough for a hot day with a cool print which is really in right now. The Rick Owens racer back tank is about as simple as you can get and is the perfect length for either tucking in (as in the look) or letting it hang out.

For the floral drapery, I initially went in search of either Tigerlily or Zimmerman (both quintessential Australian summer brands) but found exactly what I was looking for from Mara Hoffman. A cute and colourful print with an asymmetrical hem line which I am a big fan of.

To accessorise this summer look, I headed over to my favourite website for all things NZ fashion: Precious Peg. I love the jewellery coming from Stolen Hearts at the moment and this ring and necklace work well together with their mixture of silver and white gold. To finish off the look, I went with a Chloe classic leather hand bag which has the perfect strap for slinging over the shoulder and is the perfect size so as to not overwhelm the rest of the look. And of course because it is Chloe.

Although Fall fashion is on the edge of my radar, Summer is definitely not over yet and I plan to make the most of the hot weather with the perfect summer look.
